Our Mission for February is the Day by Day Warming Center. Their mission is: Day by Day Warming Shelter collaboratively provides temporary shelter, individualized services, and opportunities for self-sufficiency to empower the most vulnerable adults in our community.
The shelter first opened its doors on Oct. 15, 2011. Since then they have served 1033 individuals, provided 29,995 nights of shelter, and 60,369 warm meals. They also connect people with other services, help them find work and housing, so they are no longer homeless. Last season 124 out of 166 left the shelter for housing opportunities. They have beds for 25 people each night. Their doors open at 6:00 PM. The first 25 people who come get a bed. After that they must turn people away. Those who are turned away are given a blanket or sleeping bag and a $5 gift card to a fast food restaurant for a meal. The shelter depends on donations from churches, businesses, foundations and individuals for support to provide these services for our local homeless population. Please give generously.
